I'd like to repeat my opinion that Boye is a fraud. Everything he touches turns to shit.

And that ladies and gentlemen, is why you don't change shape or make a sub at HT. And why we don't play 4-4-2.

So brainless from us.

Complete agreement here. We played ourselves.

Rafael - 4 Awful goalkeeping for their second

Yiadom 3 - So poor. Has absolutely no conviction whatsoever. Couldn't pick a cross out if his life depended on it
Richards 3 - Looked like a school kid out there
Moore 5 - No brain
Morrison 5 - Started sharp, own goal went to his head
Miazga 5 - meh

Pele 7 - played well
Rino 4 - off form
McCleary 4 - did nothing

Meite 4 - waste of a shirt
Puscas 4 - did nothing

Boye 3 - for someone I rate, he was truly abject
Joao 5 - takes too long on the ball
Adam 8 - MOTM, played really well

Tactical shambles

But I won't be surprised if Bowen holds his hand up

It worked last week didn't it?

Our 5 at the back formation has yielded one goal in four games now, and as I said last week, the majority just come from set pieces or on the counter. It's a horrible formation to watch unless the balance is there which is clearly wasn't

Was a bit of an ugly mess that. That’s what a poor performance under Bowen looks like then

Tbf the players almost to a man played shit. Thought Rino and Pele were awful tbh, got nowhere near the brum midfield

Defence full of holes and forwards kept losing it. Hopefully just a bad day at the office etc. Missed Baldock, Swift and Ejaria massively

In saying that, could easily have got a point or more. Had chances. Adam was ridiculously good - almost got us something

Didn’t think the change made much of a difference to the balance at all tbh. Was a more open game but both sides had many more chances

Did it seem like the team missed Obita?

I'm very much in the camp that he is the only Championship standard defender in the squad. Though I haven't watched that many games this season - so that might be unfair.

Snowflake Royal The crowd are full of shit.


You got me with that argument

McCleary over hits it at one end and dives, not a foul, crowd unhappy.

McCleary wipes out a player on the edge of the box, foul, crowd sulk because it's given.

Ref spot on both times.


Yep, classic crowd moaning when ref was fine. Almost moved seat because of the group behind me - always blaming the ref rather than the players or manager.

J Low gives Adam a 5 and Yiadom a 6. Completely clueless

We didnt switch to a 4-4-2 last week. We switched to a 4-3-3.

NewCorkSeth Overrun by the opposition? Need to score a goal? Bring on Charlie Adam...


Who proceeded to be the best player on the pitch.

100% agree - he cost us the Leeds game with his laziness and adds nothing going forward
